Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: Dtc Check / Clear

DTC CHECK / CLEAR

NOTICE:

When the diagnosis system is changed from normal mode to check mode or vice versa, all DTCs and freeze frame data recorded in normal mode are cleared. Before changing modes, always check and make a note of DTCs and freeze frame data.

HINT:

  • DTCs which are stored in the ECM can be displayed on the Techstream. The Techstream can display current, pending and permanent DTCs.
  • If a malfunction is detected during the current driving cycle, current and permanent DTCs are stored.
  • Some DTCs are not stored if the ECM does not detect the same malfunction again during a second consecutive driving cycle. However, such malfunctions, detected on only one occasion, are stored as pending DTCs.
  • Current and pending DTCs can be cleared by using the Techstream or by disconnecting the cable from the negative battery terminal. However, permanent DTCs cannot be cleared using either of these two methods.
  • After clearing current DTCs using the Techstream (or by disconnecting the cable from the negative battery terminal), permanent DTCs can be cleared when the system is determined to be normal for the relevant DTCs and then the universal trip is performed.
